LGBT+Faith

We create spaces for LGBT+ people of faith to come together, and support organisations through training and workshops to ensure their services are inclusive.

Programme Overview

The Faith & Belief Forum have been working with and advocating for LGBT+ people of faith for many years.  We create affirming, inclusive spaces for LGBT+ people of faith to meet others from similar and different backgrounds to themselves, connect, and share.  

We also work to educate our community partners on the diverse experiences and needs of LGBT+ people of faith, and how they can be better allies through the work they do. 

“The Faith & Belief Forum provide a much-needed alternative – inclusive and reflective spaces for people to express their identities” 

The Faith & Belief Forum’s LGBTQ+ Interfaith Network is a space for LGBTQ+ people from different faiths, beliefs and backgrounds, to come together in a friendly environment. We use interfaith activities and methods to explore personal stories of faith and belief, learn from each other’s traditions, and build solidarity and community. We work in collaboration with a range of brilliant single faith and regional LGBTQ+ organisations.

Thanks to funding from Consortium’s LGBT+ Futures Intersection Fund, in Spring 2021 we are organising a series of online sessions.  Each session will provide opportunities for reflection, connection, and learning from each other and special guests.  All sessions will include breakout rooms for those who want to network in smaller groups.

You are welcome to have your video switched on or off, depending on your preferences.

Our LGBT+Faith workshops and trainings allows participants to reflect, learn, and build their practice for working with and supporting LGBT+ people of faith.  Since 2017 we have supported over 100 organisations across the UK to offer better support to LGBT+ people of faith in their communities. 

Our workshops and trainings support participants to:

  • Better understand the diverse ways different LGBT+ people relate to faith
  • Learn practical ways to ensure people of faith are included and welcomed
  • Gain new ideas for dealing with challenging scenarios around faith that may arise in their work or community
  • Feel more confident approaching conversations about faith

We will work with you to develop an offer that meets your organisation’s needs and budget.  In the current climate, we are only offering sessions online.  

“The training really opened my eyes! We have been able to implement it straight away to offer better support to LGBT people of faith.” 

We are proud of the excellent feedback we get for these sessions. In 2017-20, participants reported:
